Happy Holidays

I would like to wish you and your family a joyous holiday season. It is my hope that you can find it in your hearts and minds to slow down even just a little bit and appreciate everything that is around you over the next few days. Observe the smiles, the twinkling of a child’s eye as they open their gifts, and enjoy a hug from a loved one just a couple seconds longer.

It's not about the presents

I was out to dinner with my parents, brother and sister-in-law last night and we got to talking about Christmas gifts and what people wanted and the question eventually made it’s way to me (I tried my hardest to dodge it) and the only real thing I could come up with was, nothing. Truth be told Christmas, even when I was a young boy was never about the presents. I always felt a deep desire to just be with my family, friends and loved ones that day. Nothing else mattered to me other than that.
